The Trial

While I was in the radiology waiting room, and Sheila was getting the CAT scan, I received a call from the trial coordinator breaking the news that the long-awaited trial was approved today, and he was on his way over to drop off the paperwork! Sheila appeared just as he was dropping off the 17 page agreement. 

When he told Sheila the news she started crying and buried her face in my shoulder. It was a very great moment. What a relief to hear that news!!!

The results of her clotting test came back normal, so the dosage she’s taking everyday is the right amount.

We’ll find out tomorrow, hopefully, about the CAT scan.

Sheila was watching a movie tonight, “Once”, while I was reading the paper at the kitchen table. I looked up and saw her in profile and still find myself compelled to stare at her. When she has her hair up in a ponytail I get to see her beautiful long neck, her cute ears and the sculpted line of her jaw. She is so pretty! I can’t believe she’s “mine!” Yeah!!!!! 

I know it’s only been a little over a week since we cemented our commitment, but we both break out with spontaneous big grins every time we get to introduce the other as husband or wife. And when we’re home we flash each other our rings from across the room and do something like, “Hee, hee, hee…”

We’re not quite doing the Tom Cruise jump-on-the-furniture thing, but pretty close. It’s so wonderful to love someone so completely and comfortably. Even though we’ve been together over 4 years, it’s still fresh.

Well, enough gushing. It was nice to “go there” for a few minutes. A nice escape from the other stuff….
